Meet the Author

John White was born in Liverpool, England, on March 5, 1924, and grew up in Manchester. After serving as a reconnaissance photographer in the Fleet Air Arms during World War II, he completed medical training at Manchester University. He later participated in a variety of short-term missions efforts (including Bible smuggling!) and capitalized on many opportunities to encourage Christians behind the Iron Curtain during the beginning of the Cold War.
On June 25, 1955, White married Laureate May O'Hara. From 1955 to 1964 he served as a medical missionary with New Tribes Mission. Later he was appointed associate general secretary of the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students of Latin America.
White emigrated to Canada with his family in 1965 and later completed his residency in psychiatry in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He next filled the post of associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Manitoba and also served locally as pastor of Church of the Way.
He wrote 25 books as well as numerous articles and study guides. A much sought-after speaker, he lectured around the world at churches, conferences and leadership events. During his later life, White moved to Vancouver, British Columbia, helping to plant a Vineyard church there (Surrey Vineyard) and becoming involved in the larger Vineyard Christian Fellowship.
John White died in 2002, but his written ministry lives on, with over 1.5 million of his books in print.

    Amazing story in the style of CS Lewis' Masterpiece of Chronicles of Narnia

    To the publisher: Release this as an E-Book? I want it on my Nook!

    This is an engrossing tale where your eyes can't wait to turn the next page. I read this in school and simply cannot think of a better tale of the struggle between good and evil. As good as the Chronicles of Narnia!

    huzzah for old friends

    I read this five years ago in school, and rather begrudgingly at the beginning, I admit. But from chapter two and on, I was absolutely enchanted by the world of Anthropos, which holds similarities to the world of Middle Earth, and the mythology and deep magic of Narnia, yet is somehow different from both in ways I can't exactly describe. And now, a good deal older and hopefully a tad wiser, I have reread it and found a depth of meaning I never knew was there all those years ago. Huzzah for old friends.

    A thrilling page-turner

    I absolutely loved this book. It kept me waiting in anxious anticipation to find out what would happen next. It kept me captivated from start to finish, and was one of the best in the series.

    This has got to be one of my favorite books of all

    I first read the Tower of Geburah when I was ten or so, and I almost didn't because I was scared by the picture on the back. I'm so glad I didn't let that stop me, because it was the beginning of a friendship with one of my top five favorite series of books. Though this has been placed #3 in the series to keep it in chronological order, I highly recommend reading the Tower first before the other four. Mr.White wrote it first and it is the best introduction to the series. I could not give a higher recommendation to any book than this.
